Jonathan Petty: With the new concept in place, we hope this attracts a bigger audience who have a shared passion for the outdoors. We want a trade show where business and inspiration can come together in an exciting and fun-filled environment.
Where does your brand see itself within this context, how do you plan on participating at the OutDoor by ISPO?
Osprey strongly believes in the trade show concept and will continue to support these events; attending OutDoor by ISPO in 2019 as an exhibitor. Having the space to showcase our collection to both current and prospective customers and journalists is paramount when in an environment filled with passionate industry leaders.
Regarding the Plans of a 365-day platform – what do you think about this focus in the new OutDoor by ISPO concept?
We are a brand that communicates to our partners daily, we tell them no matter what the adventure you can enjoy the outdoors 365 days a year. Having a platform that reflects this will strengthen the future success of the industry as OutDoor by ISPO is more than a seasonal trade show, it is a community of passionate individuals willing to share their experiences.
